I am working on getting my Microsoft Office Specialist Certification. It has been an amazing experience! The teachers are very knowledgeable, yet able to explain things on a level anyone can understand. They are committed to helping their students do whatever it takes to accomplish their goals. If you are looking for schooling that will work with your schedule, this is it. I am a single mother, and they have worked with my schedule and made this as simple as possible. I am very grateful for New Horizons.

- Tara Ferguson

I came to NH through the WIOA program. Lisa Kelly is a fantastic advisor who helped me tailor a program that exactly met my needs. I enrolled in two classes, both taking advantage of the remote distance learning option using Adobe Connect. I attended both classes from my computer at home. The lessons are world class, and the instructors are subject matter experts in their fields. Both instructors really care about their students, and I am still in email contact with both. 

This is an organization that you can trust to help you hone the skills you need on the job or determine a course of study to launch you to the next level. I strongly endorse New Horizons. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

New Horizons Computer Learning Center environment setup was comfortable for learning and staff was helpful and friendly. Cassandra at the front desk was very helpful especially when I was struggling with the headsets used. 

The course content was excellent for the class that I was taking and the instructor was by far the best I've had for work related training. I will definitely be scheduling future training as this is a great place to grow my skillsets!

- Tomara Watkins

The personnel at New Horizons are for the most part very helpful and they are concerned with helping me get my CompTIA +A certification. I am confident that I will achieve the certification and become a bonafide technician.  

- Theo Jones

New Horizons Computer Training Center of Nashville provided the learning environment to enhance my job skills to make me a viable candidate in the job market. Lisa Kelly, my Educational Consultant, provided the knowledge, support and encouragement to keep my course studies scheduled for a successful outcome. I really enjoyed the variety of learning scenarios., The 'live' classroom instructors and the 'online' instruction offered me a lot of flexibility in the scheduling of my courses. And, since the courses are recorded, I could use them over and over again during my review to be successful at test time. All staff members are very supportive and helpful.

New Horizons also provides job placement support and resources to help students build a professional resume and then they prepare us for interviews. Employers frequently inquire with the school for potential applicants thus giving New Horizons students an edge. I would highly recommend New Horizons Computer Learning Center of Nashville to anyone wishing to improve their career potential. They offer a mind-boggling array of I.T. courses in a beautiful scenic setting. 

My Education Consultant/Coordinator Shane was both knowledgeable and very professional in helping me understand what skill sets are set for growth and highly sought after by employers. Great settings and location are meaningless without a good system of delivering high-quality technical training to a variety of ways people respond to learning. I was sold when sampled them all, instructor-led, web-based, hands-on, recorded with access to instructors by chat, textbooks, and manuals online and PDF (e-books). Self-paced or follow along is there to choose from at will. All of my instructors are certified with real-world I.T. experience and are happy to explain and break down concepts without sounding condescending. 

What more could I ask for??? More equipment for hands-on. I have acquired some on my own cheap or free, which aid me in my quest for technical excellence.

- T.J.

Great Atmosphere! Classes are every organized. Instructors want you to get your certification. Staff genuinely care about the students! Great School! Love it!

-   Nashauna Ellison

I'm currently a student at New Horizons and I love it. Lisa Kelley was my education consultant and she has been awesome. I was out of work and not sure what direction I wanted to pursue. She made time to speak with me upon us meeting and has not lost touch since. She checks on me to be sure my classes are going well and being sure I don't need anything. 

My instructor Ms. Loretta is very knowledgeable and prompt which helps me with independent studies. They have a very professional learning environment and flexibility for those with families and jobs. I definitely made the right decision and would encourage one to join our school for endless opportunities.  

- Shia Savage

- Yolanda Bennett

As a former student of New Horizons Computer Learning Center of Nashville, I can’t say enough positive things about New Horizons. From the staff, my Education Counselor Lisa Kelley took the time to listen to what I was looking for then helped me choose which classes would be best for me given what I wanted to accomplish. The class instructor Loretta McDonald is extremely knowledgeable with multiple degrees, certifications, and years of experience in the field. She makes sure that everyone in class understands the course material and why it’s important to your healthcare career. Ms. Loretta creates a fun and relaxed environment that makes learning easier. 

However, the main thing about Ms. Loretta is that if you’re willing to put in the work and participate in the learning process she’ll be right there with you to answer your questions, to make sure you understand the course material and that you can pass the certification exam(s). New Horizons of Nashville has a 2-year career placement service that will help you in your job search and to help prepare you for a position after you’ve passed your exam(s). 

Tracy Sullivan is an awesome resource for the entire student body. She helped me rewrite my resume for the position I wanted instead of my previous position. Although, New Horizons does not guarantee job placement, New Horizons does provide you all the tools and resources you’ll need to find your next position. Everyone at New Horizons Nashville is 100% committed to helping you succeed, from the President to the IT Tech, other instructors, to the receptionists. The receptionist(s) will become one of your most favorite New Horizons staff member(s). They greet you with a big smile and an exuberant hello each morning, which helps your mental well-being, and for your constitutional well-being freshly baked chocolate chip cookies every day at 2:00 PM; just awesome. 

Again, check them out, I think you’ll be very pleased with New Horizons' approach to higher learning.  

- Jerry Alexander

I love New Horizons!!! They have such a friendly and helpful staff. My education consultant, Jennifer Miller, has been amazing! I decided to get certified in Microsoft office and found them on a web search. It has been such a pleasant experience and I feel like I've really accomplished something! 

I started out with very little computer experience and now I'm finally feeling caught up with the rest of the world! I highly recommend New Horizons.  

- Amy Biggs

I have taken numerous classes New Horizons Nashville and couldn’t be happier. Jennifer Miller my account executive is awesome and extremely knowledgeable and caring. 

Jennifer’s knowledge in the process of setting me up with a plan and applying the GiBill towards my certification training was apparent from day one. I was out of work and trying to get back into IT after being out for 6 years and she had me hit the ground running. 

I am now employed with a lot of help from Tracy Sullivan on my resume and interview skills along with her numerous career contacts within Nashville I was able to get numerous interviews with the only problem being which job to take. The instructors are very knowledgeable and all the instructors I had answered any questions I had and kept the class on task. New Horizons gives you the tools to be successful and especially love the virtual server access when it comes to getting ready for a performance-based exam. 

The tools are given and along with that it is up to the individual to do their part and prepare for the exam by studying. You walk in the door and you feel welcome. Top veteran friendly company in my opinion.

- James Robertson

I had a great experience from start to finish with New Horizons Nashville. My rep Shane guided me through the process and was incredibly helpful and responsive. He was great at having everything ready to go (paperwork, instructions, etc). Everybody at New Horizons is friendly, knowledgeable and engaged. The staff was wonderful, friendly, and very customer/student oriented. 

I took the PMP Course and really liked my instructor, Clay McKenzie. I learned so much during the class. He made a very voluminous subject matter easy to understand and broken down into smaller sections. He was always available to us during breaks, lunch, or after class if we needed additional assistance. 

I would highly recommend anybody who is looking to add to their professional skills or certifications to check out New Horizons.  

- Alix Laurain
CKS Packaging

I spent nearly two months in the New Horizons Computer Learning Centers for five courses and got 3 certifications. So I can testify that New Horizons Nashville has the best team: very professional, kind and oriented for customer service. I have never had such an experience where employees were so willing to make me succeed. They all encouraged and supported me. 

The hardware works and the professors are very devoted to make you understand your software. So thank you all, you helped me so much!  

- Sandrine Thabeau-Russell

Great training classes and staff. They are always working with us to find the best training's for our staff.

- Joey Alexander

The learning environment and New Horizon's 'Blended Learning Methods', to me has been the most helpful. I want to commend everyone at New Horizon's Nashville center who have been part of my learning experience. 

And, Yes, Yes, Yes...I will definitely recommend this center for enhancing one's skills to add to your resume. P.S. --(Kim B. and LeGwen H...Thanks a whole bunch!!)

- Andrea Thomas

The classes are very interactive in person and remotely online. The instructors knew how to break down material in several ways to help me digest the material in a way I learn. The study guide and hands on activity software helped a lot.  

- Ashton Hobbs

Shane Willmon is an excellent educational consultant and very informative regarding my PMP information. The staff are thoughtful and always willing to help. Thank you for a good experience!

- Andrea Walker

My education consultant Shane Willmon helped me in ways that I never expected, and that I could never have done on my own. I worked for a company for 17 years. The last 5 remotely. New CIO cancelled work from home and I live 2 states away. As I started to look for work locally I realized that I needed education to fill some holes to make me employable in 'The Real World.' Shane listened. We agreed on a plan. 

He guided me and helped me find funding for a class I need to fill holes in my education. A real 'Class Act.'  

- Paul Nielander

New Horizons is a great school to get a new start. The staff is very supportive and the instructors are very knowledgeable and patient.  

- Ladonna Jackson

New Horizons has changed my life. I was an IT person stuck with nowhere to go. They took the time to talk to me, explain what was going on in the IT world, then told me what they could do to help. After starting classes, I leaned that I really wanted to go down a different path. I talked to them about it. They saw what I was seeing and changed my classes. Now I am in a job that I love, and happy. 

Thank you New Horizons. Without you all I would still be lost. If you want to learn, grow and just want a different job, please stop by and talk to them. They are wonderful people and they care.  

- John OMalley

Excellent school excellent staff always pleasant. Clean faculty. Jennifer is the best veteran advocate always has all the answers for me. Couldn’t have anyone else to better represent New Horizons. I will recommend New Horizons to all my fellow Veterans.    

- Corwin Reid

New Horizons Nashville is an extremely friendly and helpful IT learning facility. Shane Willmon has been instrumental in my working toward my MCSA certification and beyond. I would highly recommend this institution to those looking to improve their career opportunities. As a retired Soldier transitioning into the civilian workforce, the services offered at New Horizons Nashville have ensured my success.  

- Darrin Crowder


I was starting over after nearly twenty years in another industry when I discovered New Horizons. I'd always been technically savvy, and I've always been interested in the world of technology, so I reached out to them and met with an account representative just a few days later. From there, I took four classes to earn CompTIA certifications -- I learned as much in a six-month period as I had in the last few years at my previous job. The staff was friendly and helpful; the teachers were excellent -- the courses were intensive, but very interesting, and each prepared me to pass the certification exam. 

After I got my certifications, the job placement staff helped me update my resume and reach out to potential employers. Within a week, I had several job interviews, and within a month, I was employed as a Technical Analyst at an IT provider. 

Without the great staff of New Horizons, I might not have made the transition into a new and exciting job field. Thank you all!  

- Jeremy Witt

I was extremely satisfied with my experience at New Horizons. Lisa and Tracy were very helpful before, during, and especially after taking the class. I would highly recommend them for your training needs.  

- Danny Burns

A clean, friendly and professional environment that makes learning very easy! The staff treats you like family to ensure a positive training and learning experience. S. Willmon, T. Sullivan, L. Hamilton, Mrs. Kim, Chris and others are the best!  

- Perez Long

Wonderful and helpful staff. Awesome place for training and job placement. Highly recommend!!  

- Tracy Tramel

I was out of work and desperately looking for a job when Shane Willmon actually found me. I was at a job fair at a hotel near Briley Parkway. Shane introduced me to the WIOA program. When he told me I could get my certifications for free, I jumped on it! I have two certifications and working on the last one, which will give me my MCSD in software development. I've learned a lot studying the archived videos and can't wait to get my MCSD. New Horizons has been a blessing for me.

- Ray Levron

They are very friendly. Always helpful. I have learned so much here.

- Cheryl Mitchell

Quality certificate training, knowledgeable instructors, and helpful staff. Great place.  

- Michael Girard

Did the medical office and love it!! Ms. Loretta is the best instructor.

- Kellye Hunter

I cannot speak highly enough about NH Nashville. 100%! A+, Network+, Security+, Project + and PMP Certifications. Thank you very much Jennifer Miller.

- John Burgher




Richard Morgan, NHCentral

SQL Querying Fundamentals, Part 1

"My instructor was great. He explained SQL in a manner easy to understand and answered all of our questions. He also made the class entertaining and fun. I really enjoyed it and am looking forward for the next class tomorrow."

SQL Querying, Advanced

"Richie was an outstanding instructor - he made complex material comprehensible and helped us apply to what we do here day to day. What could have been a dull, monotonous class was upbeat and engaging. I cannot give enough praise to Richie! Thanks for all the new knowledge!"

55123 Writing Reports with Report Builder & SSRS

"Richie taught with enthusiasm, which is difficult in a normal setting, but I imagine even harder when teaching virtually. I was interested in what he had to say, and he held my attention. It was also clear that he knew exactly what he was talking about and was able to come up with examples that weren't shown in the text."

Marty Shepard, NHCentral

Word 2016, Part 3

"Marty is a very knowledgeable trainer; I look forward to taking more classes with her in the future."

SQL Querying Fundamentals, Part 2

"Marty is a very organized, polished trainer utilizing this method of teaching online. The class was on time, even with questions or issues. It was a great class."

PowerPoint 2013, Part 1

"Marty was awesome! She was very patient and unlike other instructors I've had, if there were issues with the labs, instead of telling me to go back and watch the video, she waited for people to get their labs working. She helped people navigate the difficulty of the lab. She didn't try to rush through it. She was great."

Peter de Lastic, NHCentral

Access 2019, Part 2

"Great, patient with students, and answered even the stupidest of questions like they were the most insightful. This is all more impressive because he had to essentially teach the class 3 times in 1. Once as usual. Once for the guy who could not follow along at pace. And once more when he had to remote into hands-on assist the guy who could not follow along at pace. Seriously. I'm not joking, he kept his cool and never came off as annoyed or irritated or anything, it was impressive. Serious 10/10 would learn again."

Excel 2019, Part 2

"Peter de Lastic is an excellent instructor! He goes exactly the right pace, encourages participation and brings up things that he knows could be issues or helpful for students now or in the future. EXCELLENT! I'd take a class taught by him any day! Thank you so much!"

Access 2016, Part 2

"Peter's an amazing instructor who provides phenomenal student support and uses real-life examples during his lessons! I'd love to take further trainings with him!"

CompTIA IT Fundamentals+

"Peter was an excellent instructor. I didn't know what to expect at first, but after the first 2 hours day 1, this guy knows his stuff (to put it mildly). He used real life examples as they related to the subject matter, occasional humor, and was very time conscious. Kept things moving along, took more time for explanation when needed. I was a little ... no ... a lot disappointed when he said he was not teaching my next training. I hope to enjoy the next instructor as I did you. GREAT JOB SIR!!!!”

CompTIA IT Fundamentals+

"Pete was awesome. He shared great, relevant stories, real-world practical examples, and even some wisdom that was tangential to the class but gave a richer context for the material being studied. He has a nice sense of humor and made the class super enjoyable. Great instructor!"
span class="fa fa-star checked">

Jeremy Legatzke, NHCentral

Excel 2016, Part 2

"Jeremy is knowledgeable. He is enthusiastic, friendly and has a good sense of humor to draw student attention. Great class."

OneNote 2016

"Jeremy was very engaging and attentive. He made sure that everyone was keeping up without making the others feel as though they were having to wait on those being helped. To say that Jeremy is knowledgeable is an understatement. I have a tendency to "read ahead" and lose interest if the instructor is simply reading to me. Jeremy made it feel more like a conversation than just reading to a class. I hope to have him as an instructor again."

Excel 2010, Part 2

"If ALL teachers are like Jeremy, this SHOULD be a required course for all companies. Just AMAZING!!!"

Tom Schwirian, NHCentral

Project Management Fundamentals

"After this fundamentals course has helped me confirm that Project Management is the career path that I want to pursue further!! I loved Tom's personality and positivity he brought to the course! I'd definitely take another course by him again."

Excel 2016, Part 2

"Not only was Tom clearly very experienced with excel, his excitement for the subject matter was infectious! I have never enjoyed online classes because there is always such a disconnect but I felt like I was in a classroom with him the whole time. He was very patient with explaining things twice if someone missed something and his knowledge of the software was evident when he was able to trouble shoot our problems quickly and then explained what had happened so we knew WHY there was a problem rather than just what the problem was. I would be thrilled to take another one of his classes!"

Jason Hollandsworth, NHCentral

Project Management Essentials

"Jason a.k.a. "Hoss" is a great instructor and I really enjoy attending when he is teaching. He allows the group to bring in local practices and discuss them freely, allowing us to solve problems through the application of learned knowledge."

ITIL 4 Foundation

"I was concerned about taking this class online. Jason did an amazing job! His energy and delivery made this an amazing class. I could not give him one thing to improve upon - just keep up the good work!"

CompTIA Project+ Certification

"My instructor really helped me understand everything. I was using a bit of this in real life, and had no clue what I was doing honestly. Now I am motivated to continue on for more certs and using this knowledge to be better at my job."

Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)

"Hoss was a delight to have and gave great examples. Hoss also broke down all the information and made everything enjoyable and learnable for everyone!"

Mona Cross, NHCentral

Time Management

"She showed how time management can be worked when her internet shut down on her. She stayed calm and collected. She even did a fair warning that due to weather... she was able to be the example of time management. Bad situation that turned into a plus for the class."

Presentation Skills

"Mona was a great teacher. She kept the class engaged not only with open-ended questions, but with real-life situations and relatable examples. I felt comfortable and motivated to participate in discussion in her class."

Project 2016, Part 2

"Ms. Cross's delivery was excellent and her patience with multiple connection challenges was SO ENCOURAGING for the whole class. She helped me to get back on track within moments of my technical departure."

Custom Excel 2016

"Mona is the best! This is my second time with her, and I always learn things I had no clue existed. And she makes it a fun learning environment."

Outlook 2016, Part 2

"Mona was fantastic - I enjoyed her class and I learned so much. She is a great instructor."

Time Management

"I think Mona was outstanding, I wish I had co-workers like her. She is a keeper.”

Outlook 2016, Part 1

"When I logged in this morning, I was excited to see the Miss Mona was my instructor again. This is the third class that I have had with her, so I knew that it was going to be a great class!"

Dan Russell, NHCentral

55054 Mastering Microsoft Project 2013

"I am a kinesthetic learner, so Dan's teaching style was especially effective for me. Often, instructors do not take the class through performing the activities themselves, but because Dan did, it enhanced my learning ability."

PRINCE2 Foundation

"Dan did a good job and shared his knowledge of the subject and used real world examples to help us understand. I enjoyed the class."

CompTIA Security+ Certification

"Mr. Russell was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job teaching this class! I came in with very little experience in this information and he tied things to examples that I would understand. Great job Mr. Russell!"

CompTIA Network+ Certification

"Very good instructor. Taught the material in a way that was easy to understand for someone just getting into networking. Highly recommend and commend him as an instructor."

CompTIA A+ 

"I have taken over 20+ I.T related courses. Professor Dan is the best professor. He makes complicated subjects easy to learn. I have learned so much from just the one week in class than I have in months from other courses. Dan is the MAN."

Jason Pugh, NHCentral

Extending Your Sphere of Influence

"Jason was fantastic. He encouraged participation, gave real world examples. He also remembers each of the participants and used his knowledge of them to draw conclusions for the examples he was speaking of. One of the best NH trainers I've had."

Developing Successful Interpersonal Skills

"Jason has the ability to hold your attention. I tend to get bored / easily sidetracked with lectures but this was not the case with this class. I cannot fully attribute this to the desire to learn these skills. Jason has a great engaging personality and he is good at making everyone feel comfortable. I look forward to taking another one of his classes. Thank you!"

Business Writing

"Mr. Pugh had engaged the class. He wanted us to hear what we had to say and asked those questions to where I had to think about how I do my business writing. I have been in this type of class before and I can honestly say I got more with Mr. Pugh then I ever did in my past. Love his teaching style."

Extending Your Sphere of Influence

"Jason was one of the best instructors I've had in all of my different training throughout my career. Very knowledgeable, energetic, and passionate."

Emil Rodgers, NHCentral

Excel 2016, Part 3

"He speaks well, and he really keeps a clean flow during his teaching. He's easy to follow and I feel I get a great memorable lesson especially when he shows how to trouble shoot or what you might come across and why."

20779 Analyzing Data with Excel

"Emil is a fantastic, engaging instructor who makes it easy to understand the material. He was very interactive with the labs and made it easier to understand.”

10994 Data Analysis Fundamentals with Excel

"Excellent instruction for all learning levels. Great sense of humor that made him very relatable and easy to understand. I like how he explained the WHAT and the WHY in detail before the demonstrations, so I understood what the goal was. I've had instructors that just show what to click and that doesn't help at all if I don't understand why I am doing something. Emil was great at explaining all of that.”

Doni Helms, NHCentral

CompTIA A+

"Excellent presentation skills. In-depth knowledge of subject matter and outside of subject matter. Excellent with answering questions in a very professional manner!! Doni is a positive mentor for all of his students, me included!"

CompTIA A+, Certification

"I was an audit student for the Comptia A plus certification course with professor Doni Helms and I have to say that I am really impressed with his master knowledge in the subject. I also would like to thanks New Horizon for the opportunity and for having such a great instructor."

CompTIA A+

"Only gave him a 10 cause your system didn't offer a higher number. This gentleman has a KNACK for teaching, obviously loves it and it shows. He genuinely helped me understand the more difficult sections of the course without ever appearing condescending. Give this man a raise!"

Yabrinya Tisdale, NHCentral

Excel 2016, Part 2

"Yabrinya was knowledgeable, engaging and made a class that could come across as boring fun and informative. She was an excellent instructor and I truly felt like I learned some new skills."

David Humes, NHCentral

Excel 2019, Part 1

“David went over a lot of information and explained it well. I loved all the shortcuts he showed us. That was something I will use often in my field. He was very knowledgeable in this topic and gave a lot of great examples."

Word 2016, Part 3

"Having now taken a few classes with NH, I would say David is extremely knowledgeable in the course content. He provides extra tips and information to assist in preparing for exams. Top notch! Easy-going teaching style, but still gets the point across. The music pre-class and during breaks is a nice touch."

Brian Cochenour, NHCentral

10997 Office 365 Administration

"Brian is a rock star... Great delivery on the subject matter and always answered questions."

MS-100 Microsoft 365 Identity and Services

"I was concerned about taking this class because the instructor in the prerequisite class talked over my head a lot. I appreciated that Brian explained everything clearly, in easy-to-understand terms for a novice and used a lot of visuals to help explain. That, along with his expert knowledge, make him an exceptional online instructor."

10962 Advanced Automated Administration w/ Windows PowerShell

"Brian was the perfect instructor. He placed a lot of emphasis on using real-life examples in his sessions so that we could relate to the material being covered. He was pleasant and very receptive to questions and welcomed feedback throughout each day. I honestly can't say enough about Brian as an instructor. I was a little apprehensive doing an online virtual training from home, but this is now my preferred format! Everything was smooth and it was nice to learn something new from the comfort of my own space. All in all, this was time well-spent."

Shawn Bolan, NHCentral

10979 Introduction to Microsoft Azure for IT Professionals

"Shawn was absolutely outstanding. This was hands-down the best run training class I've ever taken part in. He runs the course efficiently, gets the topics out to you without doing a "death by PowerPoint." He was easy to understand, communicated the information really well, and was very helpful with one-on-one help with any questions we had. Shawn was really truly an awesome instructor!"

Eric Satterfield, NHCentral

Excel 2016, Part 1

"Eric did a great job instructing and making the class informative and fun!"

Microsoft Teams

"I know many people at Lincoln Financial Group have taken this course. Eric’s passion and enthusiasm for the material and software, was infectious. He is a skilled instructor and it was enjoyable to learn the material from him."

Lynn Trapp, NHCentral

ITIL4 Foundation

"Exceptional instructor, very knowledgeable and personal and approachable."

Oracle 12c SQL Fundamentals

"Lynn is very informative. He explain everything step by step that I can easily understand."

Hamish MacFarlane, NHCentral

Excel 2016, Part 1

"Hamish MacFarlane was a very engaged instructor, encouraged questions, answered questions in a timely manner and made sure to tell everyone they were doing a great job and a few students who had issues with Excel, he helped them and made sure everyone else had something to practice in the meantime. I would take a class with him again.”

Excel 2016, Part 3

"I really enjoy taking the class with Hamish. He is very easy to understand, and he simplifies the course. He is also very helpful in assisting the class and answering our questions."

Charles Watkins, NHCentral

10985 Intro to SQL Databases

"Of the 4 New Horizons courses I've taken Charles was the best instructor. He made learning applicable to real world scenarios and presented the subject matter in a manner that made learning fun. I hope the next course I take through New Horizons is taught by Charles. His approach to teaching made the material stick as well as made me very comfortable with the topic."

10982 Supporting/Troubleshooting Windows 10

"Charles needs to be commended to the highest degree for his training abilities. Not only is he a technical Jedi, he is extremely personable. He kept our attention the entire time with his energetic personality, delightful banter and crowd participation.”

10961 Automating Administration with Windows PowerShell

"Charles provided a very engaging and genuinely upbeat atmosphere on a daily basis. He is obviously interested in the technology and wants to share that with his class, and that is clearly his goal throughout the week."


"What I liked about Charles is he was very patient with questions, liked to provide value add comments and examples. I do wish he had done all 5 days, even though I thoroughly enjoyed Kirk."

Karen Botwinik, NHCentral

Adobe Photoshop CC, Part 1

"Karen was amazing. As someone who had never used Photoshop before, Karen was super helpful and went at a fantastic pace. She answered all of my questions and never made me feel like I was silly for asking anything. She took the time to try and get to know each of us, which really helped make this feel like it was a team effort between all of the participants and the instructor. Overall, she made the experience more enjoyable than I could have imagined.”

Adobe InDesign CC Part 2

"Ms. Botwinik was a great instructor. She gave us so many great tips, more than what was in the outline and book. She has so much knowledge. I will sign up for another class with her. She answered everyone's questions and was so professional and pleasant."

Jim Lifter, NHCentral

2016/2019 Data Analysis with Pivot Tables

"Awesome instructor! Hope to have him back for expert-level excel classes!”

Lose The Drama

"Jim is fantastic and teaches a multitude of training courses! He is really such a positive person to lead these classes during this scary time caused by the Coronavirus."

Alan Harrah, NHCentral


"Alan brought real world scenarios to the material. His method for remembering Symmetric Crypto was great. I can't forget it now. Thank you for that!!! That is just one of the many items in this class that he helped me look at in a different manner.”

Aubrey Kaigler, NHCentral

Project Management Professional Certification Preparation

"Professor Kaigler was extremely knowledgeable on this course and definitely enhanced the class by real time examples. The PMP course is intense but the pace Mr. Kaigler presented enabled me to obtain and understand the key concepts and theories that are needed to PASS the PMP 6th EDITION EXAM!”

John Suhr, NHCentral

ITIL 4 Foundation

"Fantastic job. You were easy to understand and gave great info."

Steven Andrews, NHCentral
